The Problem With Vegans

Green Jihad

This video done by Roaming Millennial addresses some of the problems she sees with the way a lot of (but not all!) vegans behave regarding hostility, aggression, nutritional info, and all in all being a little bit annoying. This isn’t about veganism as a concept, but rather the way some vegans act toward those who aren’t.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

John Stossel interviews Oren Cass, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, about just how worthless the Paris Agreement actually was.

For Greenpeace, Honesty is Just a Word

Big Picture News, Informed Analysis

SPOTLIGHT: More on Greenpeace’s peculiar definition of free speech (see previous post here).

BIG PICTURE: For the past decade, Greenpeace has publicly insisted that free speech is not absolute. Rather than regarding it as a fundamental, non-negotiatiable pillar of democracy, Greenpeace treats free speech like a bit of wire to be twisted this way and that.

Intent on squelching climate dissent, a Greenpeace website says “there’s also responsibility that goes with freedom of speech – which is based around honesty and transparency.”

What rubbish. Free speech advocacy, extending back centuries, has never placed an asterick beside this noble idea, and then proclaimed in small print: only applies if you’re being responsible, honest, and transparent. If all it takes to shut you down is someone pointing a finger and yelling ‘dishonest,’ free speech is utterly meaningless.

In legal documents, the contents of which have not been proven in court, Resolute Forest…

Americans Try To Pronounce French Names

A Message from the Big-6 Pesticide Companies to Green Activists: THANK YOU!!!

The Risk-Monger

The Risk-Monger is breaking with tradition and publishing an article he did not write. But he fully supports the content and hopes people give this some thought (and a smile).

The following is a fictional letter from M-Corporation (a fictional American pesticides-biotech company). It was sent to all members of the SPD (Social Democratic Party), B90/Grüne (Green Party), Die Linken (Left Party) and the relevant NGOs. Although it is fictional, it reflects the thoughts that must be going through the minds of  “Big-6” managers. The longer version in German was sent to all members of the German Parliament on 21 February 2018. The anti-science developments in Germany may be extreme, but it is not unique. This “letter” with its bitter irony may therefore be of interest for people outside this country who believe that political decisions should be based on science rather than populism.

Dear Politicians, NGOs and those campaigning against Green Biotech,

Why Denmark dominates the World Happiness Report rankings year after year

Because Danes are trapped inside by the cold and snow, families have to talk to each other and as a bonus don’t get taxed on that compared to buying entertainment in the market out of after tax wages and then pay VAT.

Mostly Economics

I had just blogged about this wonderful story of a US citizen living in Denmark for a few days to figure the so called Dane life and happiness.

In this pieceMarie Helweg-Larsen Professor of Psychology at Dickinson College writes on what makes Denmark top happiness rankings year after year. It is something called “hygge” (intimacy and trust) which is behind these rankings:

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
